Anne Hathaway Wants to Be Known As Annie, Stages Photoshoot

While talking with Jimmy Fallon, Anne Hathaway informed the world she prefers to be called by her nickname Annie!

"Call me Annie. Everybody, everybody, call me Annie. Please. When I was 14 years old I did a commercial and I had to get my SAG (Screen Actors Guild) card and they asked me 'what do you want your name to be?'

"And I'm like, well it should be my name - my name is Anne Hathaway... and that seemed like the right choice, but it never occurred to me that for the rest of my life people would call me Anne.

"The only person who ever calls me Anne is my mother, and she only does it when she's really mad at me. Like, really mad. And so every time I step out in public and someone calls my name I think they're going to yell at me. Call me anything but Anne."

In other news, Annie decided to take to Instagram to show off her red carpet dresses she would have worn for film premieres pre-covid.

Courtney Vucekovich, Horror Hammer's Ex, Speaks Up

After trying to deny the allegations about him as "I'm not responding to these bullshit claims but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me", one of his exes has now come forward with her own story about her time with him.
Here are some choice quotes:
[TW for abuse]

  • "He said to me he wants to break my rib and barbecue and eat it,” app founder Courtney Vucekovich exclusively told Page Six.

  • "He enters your life in such a big way. He’s such a captivating person. He has such a presence and he’s aware of that and he uses it in such a way that most women would think, ‘Oh my gosh, this is amazing,’ but especially young women, that’s kind of the scary part — how good he is at active manipulation and making you feel like he’s never felt this way about anybody,”

  • “He quickly grooms you in the relationship,” she explained.

  • “He did some things with me that I wasn’t comfortable with,” she said.

  • Following their breakup, Vucekovich found herself having panic attacks thinking about what she endured in their volatile relationship. Her chest hurt and she struggled to breathe, so she checked herself into a 30-day partial hospitalization program for PTSD and trauma.

The Video for JoJo's Lost Single 'The Other Chick' Has Leaked

ReJOice, JoJo fans! The full video for her unreleased 2011 single "The Other Chick" has finally leaked! For years, fans have been teased with behind-the-scenes footage and small snippets, but the video in its entirety has never been available until now. "The Other Chick" was planned to be the first single and video from a scheduled 2011 album called Jumping Trains, but it was ultimately pulled from official release and replaced with the single "Disaster." Differences with her label, Blackground Records, led to the release of Trains to be scrapped entirely shortly afterwards. JoJo finally was able to free herself from her label drama in 2016 to release music officially again, but fans still wonder "What could have been?" if this powerhouse single was given a fair shot. With the vocals and looks she's serving in the video, it's hard to dispute that this could have easily been as big as previous singles "Leave (Get Out)" and "Too Little, Too Late."


Do you think this would have been a hit in 2011, ONTD? It was rumored that the song & video was shelved after Zedd turned in a remix of it that everyone felt was way better than the original...if you can track down that version, I highly recommend it!

Daniel Dae Kim and Tony Goldwyn cast in “The Hot Zone: Anthrax.”

'National Geographic has chosen its stars for its next installment of the highly-rated, disease-focused anthology series, “The Hot Zone: Anthrax.”Today, the flagship channel, along with Scott Free Productions and 20th Television (a division of Disney Television Studios), announced that Daniel Dae Kim (“Hawaii Five-0, “Lost,” “The Good Doctor,”) and Tony Goldwyn (“King Richard,” “Scandal,” “Lovecraft Country,”) will lead the six-episode show that centers on the anonymous bioterror attacks that caused panic across the country mere weeks after the chaos of 9/11. The limited miniseries depicts the trials of USAMRIID scientists, FBI agents and Justice Department personnel that joined forces to triumph over the national threat that claimed five lives and left 17 others ill. After a slew of turf wars and false alarms, the unlikely interagency team eventually cracks the case and closes in on the prime suspect.

[Spoiler (click to open)]In “The Hot Zone: Anthrax,” Kim will portray Matthew Ryker, an FBI agent with a specialty in microbiology, while Goldwyn will take on the role of Bruce Ivans, a brilliant microbiologist who gets caught up in the hunt for the anthrax killer. While working closely with law enforcement to unravel the mystery of the deadly letters, Goldwyn himself begins to unravel, giving way to deeper and unnerving discoveries about the complex crime.'

Dua Lipa doesn't think her beauty has anything to do with her success

In Dua's latest interview for Rolling Stone, she's pretty much asked the same safe questions and gives the same safe answers, hitting all the fan-favourite feminist and political points. But when the interviewer throws her a curveball and asks her if her beauty has had a certain power in terms of her career, she goes quiet and hashes out a generic answer about practising self-care to feel good about herself.

At a later meeting for the same interview, Dua comes back with an actual answer:
I’ve been thinking about it almost every day, and I was just a little bit taken aback. I’ve never really seen being pretty or beautiful as some kind of power. It’s never been something that I identify with and — with no disrespect to you, obviously — I feel like I was a little bit shortchanged in a way, because I don’t feel like I’ve gotten to where I am because of that. I’m extremely hardworking and driven, and I feel like that’s the reason why I got to where I am, through my hard work and my drive, and I just wanted to make that clear because it has been playing on my mind.

ONTD, do you think Dua Lipa should recognise her beauty privilege?

Shawn Mendes Has His Own Bowl at Chipotle

Shawn Mendes and Chipotle are teaming up. The Shawn Mendes Bowl is made up of: cauliflower rice, black beans, chicken, lettuce, roasted chili corn salsa and guacamole.

It comes as no surprise that The Shawn Mendes Bowl lacks any tomatoes, since the singer has publicly stated that he hates them and thinks they ruin everything.

For every bowl sold through the Chipotle app in the US and Canada between January 14th and January 28th, $1.00 will go to The Shawn Mendes Foundation.

Collaborations with artists is nothing new to Chipotle, the chain has previously worked with Miley Cyrus on the Miley Cyrus burrito which featured white rice, black beans, fajita veggies, roasted chili-corn salsa, tomatillo-red chili salsa, romaine lettuce and guacamole.

Would you try a Shawn Mendes Bowl or a Miley Cyrus burrito?

Taco Bell Is Bringing Back Two Potato Items

Last year, Taco Bell cut a number of items from its menu, including two dishes that featured its seasoned potatoes: Cheesy Fiesta Potatoes and the Spicy Potato Soft Taco. Those two items will be back in restaurants on March 11, the chain announced on Thursday.

Rumors of Taco Bell dropping potatoes started to swirl last summer after a Reddit user, identified as a verified employee, said they were leaving the menu. Taco Bell soon confirmed the news, leading to a lot of dismay online.

"I feel like I've almost heard from everybody in the country on the potato bites," said Taco Bell's global chief food innovation officer Liz Matthews. "This was the one that really hit home for people," she said, noting that Taco Bell got more feedback on this particular decision than it expected.

Girl Scout cookies available for delivery from Grubhub

For the first time, Girl Scouts will now partner with Grubhub to deliver its beloved cookies. Online ordering through Grubhub begins February 14th. Online ordering through the Girl Scouts' Digital Cookie Platform begins February 1st.

Interim GSUSA CEO Judith Batty said in a statement this week: "We're proud of the resourceful ways Girl Scouts are running their cookie businesses safely and using their earnings to make the world a better place". Pandemic-related restrictions on in-person cookie sales have helped the girls develop their entrepreneurial skills. They've had to "use innovative sales tactics, and pivot to new ways of doing business when things don't go according to plan".

To find out if Grubhub will be delivering Girl Scout cookies in your area, you can enter your zip code on a special page of its website.

Grubhub is waiving all of its fees for the Girl Scouts so that the organization will get 100% of proceeds from its cookie sales with the Girl Scout saying in the press release: "GSUSA is grateful to Grubhub for waiving all fees for the organization to make this new delivery option feasible for sales without reducing troops' and councils' proceeds".

Other ways to get Girl Scout Cookies and to find contact-free cookie booths in your area visit www.girlscoutcookies.org or text COOKIES to 59618 or download the official Girl Scout Cookie Finder app.
